But I think it just made the whole thing fun, cool and memorable.My friends were so surprised that at 24 years old I had never had a real Valentine’s Day, but I am pretty sure I am not alone (please LEAVE COMMENTS below if this year was also your first V-Day! Last Valentine’s Day, my friend told me not to be sad that I didn’t have anyone to celebrate with – when the time is right, it will exceed all your expectations. So let’s go back to talking about the big V-Day date, and chatting about some points that I think are interesting to share.Having “the talk” Before V-Day this year, my boyfriend and I had been dating for a couple of months, and we were right at the point of “defining the relationship.” We had a big, formal talk over dinner one night to discuss where we were in this relationship and where it should be going, and this talk basically determined if we would celebrate Valentine’s Day together.Overall, Americans are very very cautious on the dating scene.They are viewed as feminazis, narcissistic, histrionic, materialistic, shallow, and useless.Now I am not one to generalize, but even from my own experience, I cannot say this viewpoint is not that far from the truth."Like many entrepreneurs," said 2Red Beans co-founder Q Zhao, "I started 2Red Beans with my friends to solve our own problems—finding dates which eventually lead to life partners." Founded in 2010, and modeled after JDate, a dating site for Jewish Singles, 2Red Beans is an online dating site for the Chinese diaspora or "Overseas Chinese." It boasts almost 500,000 members, of whom 70 percent use simplified/traditional Chinese as their default site language, 30 percent were born in North America, and only 2 percent are non-Asian.
The United States has traditionally been thought of as a melting pot.
American culture encompasses the customs and traditions of the United States.
"Culture encompasses religion, food, what we wear, how we wear it, our language, marriage, music, what we believe is right or wrong, how we sit at the table, how we greet visitors, how we behave with loved ones, and a million other things," said Cristina De Rossi, an anthropologist at Barnet and Southgate College in London. Because of this, the United States is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. culture has also been shaped by the cultures of Native Americans, Latin Americans, Africans and Asians.
Thomas Jefferson's Notes on the State of Virginia was perhaps the first influential domestic cultural critique by an American and was written in reaction to the views of some influential Europeans that America's native flora, fauna, including humans, were degenerate.
American culture includes both conservative and liberal elements, scientific and religious competitiveness, political structures, risk taking and free expression, materialist and moral elements. culture and its highly symbolic nature lead some researchers to categorize American culture as a mythic identity; It also includes elements that evolved from Indigenous Americans, and other ethnic cultures—most prominently the culture of African Americans, cultures from Latin America, and Asian American cultures.
